Why does Brave show a bunch of manifest.json files sometimes, when I start it?

I’ve noticed that sometimes when I startup browser after not starting it for a while…

In my history appears a bunch of manifest.json files (see screenshot for reference). This seems very weird to me. I am not sure where these files live, so I can’t access them and see what they contain. I just wonder what they’re doing-- if they’re doing anything insecure such as transmitting data about my brave browsing.

(This is when the browser starts on a blank tab, during a regular start of the app. Prior to this the app is completely closed.)

Thanks for your time.
